Protecting FERPA while working remotely

When handling student information at home, please be mindful of disposing of student information. Even scratch paper where you have written a student ID number should be discarded properly. Do not throw away paper containing student information and do not attempt to shred it at home unless you have a cross-shredder which cuts into little pieces instead of strips. Normal strip shredding is not sufficient. Instead, establish a receptacle as a shred bin. When you return to work, bring the papers in and place them in a college shred bin. If your department does not have a shred bin, you can access bins in the VP office area, Student Success or Financial Aid.
